Step Two: bake

Set the oven to 375 degrees and bake for 55-70 minutes. To see if it is done, stick a toothpick in the middle of the loaf. If it comes out with just a few moist crumbs, then it is done. If the toothpick comes out clean, then it is overcooked. Allow the loaf to cool in the pan for five minutes before taking it out to cool on a rack. Let it cool completely before making the glaze.

Step three: make the icing
